For those who battle illness, the lonliness is the worst symptom. (My family is usually terrific, but occasionally they bale out on me.) Depression and self-pity are hard to shake---there are very few, even in my beloved family, that can walk through that valley with me.

Mountain climbing by myself


despite my impoverished health--


Lonliness I dread the more


than ache of head


and muscles sore.


If I whimper or complain,


You parachute from the plane


As though my condition


Endangers your ambition.


When the pinnacle I mount,


When victory I gain,


I'll forgive you 


for leaving me


alone with my pain.


My spirit grows stronger as my


body betrays


Enriched by only God,


I will live above the fray.
